Mississippi State got out to a surprising 28-7 lead over No. 4 Texas A&M in the second quarter on Saturday, and that should have been plenty to keep Bulldogs head coach Dan Mullen happy.

Instead, MSU let the Aggies back into the game just before halftime, resulting in a full-blown headset-throwing temper tantrum by Mullen.

With 19 seconds left in the half, the Bulldogs drew some foolish penalties instead of running down the clock, and wound up having to punt the ball to A&M's Christian Kirk, who returned it 93 yards for a touchdown.

Mullen then lost his cool and went nuclear:

Mullen appeared to be upset about a missed call early in the play, but the refs weren't hearing it and flagged him for unsportsmanlike conduct.

The Bulldogs headed into halftime with a 28-14 lead over the Aggies in a potential upset alert.
